contradictory public statements by the president, the secretary of state and the u.n. ambassador on libyan terrorist attacks. state department officials telling a house investigative committee that they never told anyone in the obama administration or anyone else for that matter, the terrorist attacks in benghazi were linked in any way whatsoever to an anti-muslim internet video. a video that the president himself over a three-week period of the cause of those attacks. someone in the administration is clearly not telling the truth. the house oversight committee chairman, darrell issa, is not pleased. the president cannot be pleased. the public statements are contravened by both evidence and testimony now before the oversight committee. listen to secretary of state hillary clinton's remarks at andrews air force base at the return of the ceremonies for the four americans murdered in benghazi. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video that we had nothing to do it. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that, because it is sense
that russia in involved. that's going to complicate what's already an awful situation at the u.n. security council isn't it? >> that will make things a lot more difficult. turkey and syria, we pretty much know that relationship. there is no relationship. but now if this country, turkey, has to start having a difficult relationship with russia, i think that will tremendously complicate international diplomacy. earlier today russia's prime minister was adamant that it needed an explanation about what had happened. we're told that there's been no particular communication so far between those capitols. >> when, james, when syria describes this as a hostile act, it is just diplomat i think language. but what could it mean? >> i think to be absolutely honest i'd have to go back to the original language and look to see exactly which word was used, another translation we've seen was an act of air pirate si. if you just judge the turkey, syria hostility on rhetoric, you should be alarmed. i've just come back from the border where we could overlook syria and we saw the education minister visiting. w
in california. >> gregg: u.n. sanctions taking a huge toll on iran's economy but are they pushing leaders for a possible compromise over their nuclear program. we'll take a closer look at that in a moment. ♪ >>. >> gregg: iran denying looking to strike a deal to end the standoff over the nuclear program over one report that iranian officials made a compromise plan at the united nations last month. this coming as sanctions are apparently crippling their economy with recent protests there in years. is iran ready to budge? steven yates is former deputy assistant for national security affairs. great to see you. what are the chances that iran would actually capitulate to western demands by suspending the production of 20% uranium if you spin it a bit more could be used to make a nuclear bomb? >> gregg, i'm afraid what it sounds like the pieces of deal that were reported by the "new york times," basically the leftovers have more than ten years of negotiations with europe and united states and the u.n. security council. i don't feel there is lot new there. it's been offered and taken back and
, they have shared the wealth, and it's true that even according to the u.n. there are fewer people today living in poverty in venezuela than there were when chavez took office. you know, randi, there is a sense here that, look, his time is over, and that's not just because he fought cancer. he claims he's cancer-free but on the campaign trail he isn't looking very healthy, and there is this sense that chavez revolution, the very left wing socialist revolution that he started, could be waning and the problem is taking from government coffers they haven't really invested as much. if you start from that oil infrastructure moving right down to the roads, in caracas, in the capital or out to the regions where there's lots of power, this is a country hanging on by a fiscal threat and they say next year default is perhaps possible and for sure financial restructuring will have to happen, and that could mean a devaluation of the currency here. randi? >> paula, what is at stake really for the u.s. in this election. >> reporter: you know, it might surprise many people in the united states that alm
speaks, the ambassador will speak to us. former ambassador to the u.n. and advisor to the romney campaign. so he's going -- i know i read some excerpts. he's delivering the speech right now. we haven't heard what he's actually saying at the moment but in reading some of the excerpts, i know he will be -- he will say the u.s. should be more assertive i guess in the syrian conflict. what should we be doing that we're not doing with regard to syria? >> well i think governor romney points out that the policy that the obama administration has followed the past 18 months has been a failure. the conflict continues. we relied on russia to help us find a way to ease the dictatorship out of power. that was never going to work. as a consequence with russia and iran still supporting assad, we have had this on going battle with probably over 20,000 civilians killed. what governor romney recommends in the speech -- in the speech is that we carefully select leaders in the opposition who we can trust and see if it is possible to support them. connell: but getting involved ourselves is not realistic, is i
and the east african bombings that left 265 people dead. >> that was dan webber reporting. senior u.n. correspondent richard roth joining me live from new york. al masri is scheduled to be in court today. what's the latest we're hearing about that. >> reporter: supposed to be his first proceeding through the legal system, timing not known yet. this is in downtown manhattan not far from the scene of 9/11, and the defendant has been praise worthy of what occurred on september 11th, 2001, and he's also been accused as dan rivers talked about on those 11 terror related charges in the uk of inciting violence and terrorism. he did not want to come here, neither did the four other men who flew in on two planes at 2:30 in the morning eastern time. they feared conditions in prison here in the united states, his attorneys in the uk said he's not well, he's got very physical and emotional other issues. >> meantime one of the other suspects, the father of that other suspect says that his son is innocent. just take a listen to what he had to tell cnn earlier. >> i'm disappointed because i thought
said syrians had fled the country, almost a third had fled. jordan and the u.n. are working to get children back in school but there are challenges. take a listen. >> there are two problems here in jordan. one is that i was just at the zatari camp near the border where there are about 30,000 refugees and where you started from scratch with unhcr and others just a couple months ago and we are building schools and finding teachers, both jordanian and syrian to teach the kids, but the problem is winter is coming and it is all tents right now. so urgently we are working to bring in prefabricated buildings and others. but about two-thirds of the refugees from syria have scattered in jordan and are living in communities where we are working to bring them into schools because with typical arab hospitality, the jordanians are welcoming them into the public school system. so there's a lot of work there. the main problem, of course, is all the schools in syria. we are seeing a tenth of them damaged. there are a lot of kids out of school and we are very actively trying to get them into school
'll have to continue to watch it. >> thank you. it will be exciting at the u.n. you know that. >>> i want to take you now to the syrian, turkish border. this has been a mess lately. artillery fire has been flying over the border and it started concerns that the cross border dispute could be a big, large regional battle. ivan watson's on the ground there. >> reporter: turkish and syrian artillery have now exchanged fire across the border for a sixth straight day. the turks are making it very clear that any time any gunfire or cannons or mortars fire into turkish territory from syria, they will respond immediately in kind. as far as the military alliance goes, last week, they held emergency talks declaring support for turkey when it first came under fire and also condemning syria for shooting into turkish territory, but up until now, no one has invoked article five of the charter. that considers attacks on one member of the alliance to be an attack on all of them and requires the entire alliance to come to the defense of the attacked party. >> all right. thank you very much. coming up next,
and arm syrian opposition groups so they can defend themselves. while a u.n. investigation found regime forces most likely responsible for the killings and said that rebel forces were also guilty of murder and torture and several radical islamic groups emerged in syria. president obama recently promised to send the syrian rebels another $45 million. the u.s. already shipped food, medicine and communications gear but no lethal weapons. some former military officials say it is time to do more. >> that does not mean the u.s. should put boots on the ground. but our leadership should be felt, it should be visible. >> reporter: now, by most estimates, the syrian regime has thousands of battle tanks and a regular supply of ammunition of iran to fight that kind of armament you're talking about giving the rebels things like shoulder-fired rockets and there is a concern that sending those types of weapons in could fall in to the hands of terrorists. that's the big difference with president obama's regime or his administration i should say. he's been advocating trying to keep it a low intensity co
. again, this contradicts directly what was said by the u.n. ambassador, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice. and it contradicts essentially what the administration had been saying for five days after we reported that intelligence officials had within 24 hours that this was a terrorist attack. this comes ahead of committee hearing tomorrow on capitol hill where a house oversight committee will start calling witnesses. they have uncovered a full list of some 230 security incidents that happened in the year before. on the consulate. and the area around the consulate. in libya. and one of the congressman who just got back from libya talked about that today. and state department response. >> twice in the lead up to this attack on 9/11 compound in benghazi was bombed. twice the british ambassador had an assassination attempt. we were moving in 9/11 and now the white house wants to say we had no direct information. no actionable intelligence. are you kidding me? where else in the world was the consulate bombed twice? >> i'm not going in timeline details what we had when and whe
to syria-- has blocked multiple efforts in the u.n. security council to sanction damascus. in washington, state department spokesperson victoria nuland, left little doubt where the u.s. stands. >> we strongly support the government of turkey's decision to inspect the plane, and while we would send you to them for more details on what they found, we'd be concerned by any effort to supply military equipment to the assad regime because it's clearly being used by the regime against their own people. >> warner: all of this, as tensions between turkey and neighboring syria have escalated sharply. ankara has been leading demands for syrian president assad's ouster. last week brought cross-border shelling after a syrian mortar attack into turkish territory. the turks and the syrian army have traded artillery volleys for several days since. for more on what's behind the plane incident, i'm joined by soner cagaptay. he's director of the turkish research program at the washington institute for near east policy, and a columnist for turkey's oldest english-language newspaper, hurriyet daily news. wel
, as one participant on kennedy's conference call told us. that conflicts with the account that u.n. ambassador susan rice offered when she told the sunday shows that they occurred after a protest spun out of control. >> we're going to focus on the facts. there has been a lot of speculation out there. some in both sides of the aisle have tried to use it politically, which is wrong. >> ambassador rice has since told lawmakers her statements on that sunday were based on the most current information of the security department as of that morning. >> shep: thank you. one of the world's largest cell phone makers could be a threat to america's national security? new warnings for lawmakers in d. but first, sirs years of hugo chavez. voters electing the anti-american leader despite his battle with cancer. plus, if kids keep asking to move, this might be why. we'll tell where you homework is banned. hello, children in the room. look at the television, please. we'll show you where homework is banned. it will be your favorite moment of the news in many years mike rowe here at a ford dealer with

the u.n. regulations for shipping explosives. a detention hearing is set for tomorrow. >>> police are looking for a woman who swiped an expensive wedding dress from a new jersey store. it happened a week ago in fanwood. the shop owner says the woman came in with a group of six friends and a small child. the friends were distracting the owners inside the dressing room while the woman was able to grab a $5,000 gown and walk out. police say the little girl was in on the act, too. >> the kid asked for my wife to go to buy pizza and go by a drink, and we say this is a boutique store this is not a restaurant. >> so far, no one has come forward to identify the woman or her accomplices. >> that's pretty bold. >> i don't know what you're thinking to drag a child into the mess as well. >> i'm thinking a huge wedding gown, you're walking down the street. somebody might notice that. >> somebody might catch you. time for weather and traffic. veronica johnson here with some forecast news for us. >> yeah. our weather is not that crazy. but certainly has gotten colder during the overnight. not so

to be struggling under another u.n. envoy. the problem that is the u.s. and many others had hoped that by working with russia, because of the dependence on russia for a lot of the military equipment and other support that they could convince assa do end the repression if he did not step aside begin to think about a transition. that approved unable. they were not able to sustain that efficient. they argued and continued to side with the syrian line that this is, these are dangerous foreign fighters. this is a terrorist campaign, and that others are provoking this, that the syrian regime is simply trying to defend the sovereignty. the diplomatic course is not promising still, but i think neededs to be renewed commitment to the effort to tri to work the european union and the gulf states to tri to end this because what we have seen now with the potential for the side withening, widening conflict. the other option is the notion of equipping the syrian army directly. this has been an idea that has been out there for sim time. they have been getting weapons. the u.s. has revided at least openly said it
